Belgium Return of the King... June '15

Recommended Posts

I wasnt expecting any of that after seeing the fist couple of pics, but there is still some nice features here and you can grasp what a grand staircase that once was too. What a shameful waste of a beautiful building. The shaft is cool too! :thumb

Looking at the outside I'm amazed there's any floors above ground level but there's some nice bits left in there, nice shots as always :thumb

Very nice set. I was there twice in the last five years and I really liked the place.

Difficult to find any information about it. On the web only few information about the castle can be found - and these are also contradictory. On one website I read that it was supposedly built in the 17th century as a summer residence on the ruins of a castle from the 14th century; and the building was expanded around 1870 and also modernized later.

Another source reported that the castle was built in 1912 by a German family with eight children. After the sale in the 60s it was allegedly used until 1990 for staff accommodation.

I was there last summer and had a decent mooch around got some shots of the interior and then heard the owner who lives in the other house near by come round in his van so we legged it before I could get any external shots. Did you get any shots of the bizarre artwork on the road to this place? The red chairs somehow constructed around a load of trees.

      A church that stands in a small village right on the main street.
      The condition of this church is still good.

      One I did on my own. Was in that neighbourhood on a non urbex occasion. Was travelling light with only the camera and my tripod. Parked the car some distance away and walked over there.
      Once inside it was surprisingly quit busy there (I thing 8 persons) in a closed shop). One of the persons was carting a baby. It looked like a family day out to me. Went upstairs and waited to come down when the people were gone. Strange to see so much stuff still in the shelf's.

      In a tram depot you find these unused and rotted trams.
      It was not possible to make more pics, because the security from the tram depot get us.

      I saw a couple of pics of this epic little turbine hall online, so from google maps, previous euro visits and general research I had a good idea of where it could be, also having a bit of a thing for the Belgian industry at the moment I had to have it!
      So while over there recently we went and checked the 2 buildings I had narrowed it down to - number 2 being the jackpot Soon enough we found our way in and were greeted by an extra bit of steelworkings as well as said turboners.
      Thanks to Obs for the joint effort in tracking it down and sustaining a foot injury in the process, worth it though haha I loved this place  
       
      No major control room porn, and I do love a control room, but it had two larger panels and other smaller ones dotted about.

      The Chateau LadyBug is a beautiful place to explore, with a lot of different styles and photo opportunities.
      The main building was built during the XIXth century.
      It became a restaurant during the 80's when a rich investor decided to reconvert himself in the restauration.
      He renovate the place to reach the standards of the most famous restaurants, hire a famous cook and won a star in the Michelin Guide quickly.
      Things turned bad for the owner when his chief cook decided to quit.
      Then, he tried to test his luck again by hiring two new cook, but without success, at all...
      Customers started to desert the place, bills started to piles up and bankrupt arrived few months later.

      Currently, the place is for sale for more than 2M.
      We explored it just in time before it was closed and cameras were installed.
